Contest: Win a Signed, Special-Edition Copy Opeth's New Album, 'Heritage'
In honor of the release of Opeth's tenth album, Heritage, we're teaming up with Roadrunner Records to offer you a shot at winning one of five signed, special-edition copies of Heritage!
To win, all you have to do is simply scroll down and leave a comment naming your favorite track from Heritage and why the song is your favorite. We'll then select five lucky winners to receive a special edition of the band's new album, signed by the band. It's that easy!
Heritage recently debuted a No. 1 on the UK Rock Albums chart.
Said Mikael Akerfeldt of the band's new album: "It's quite intense at times in some 'old' murky way, and quite beautiful and stark at times, if I may say so myself. It's obvious I'm going to say nice things about it since I wrote, basically, the whole piece, but I guess it will raise a few eyebrows and it certainly is an acquired taste. I think you'll need a slightly deeper understanding of our music as a whole to be able to appreciate this record. I've realized my influences for this album are so diverse that I can't really say what it sounds like. If I can compare it to any other band, it would have to be Opeth, but it's different from the stuff we've done before."
Note: Registration is required for commenting. Please use your real email address when registering, as we'll use this to contact you if you're selected as a winner.
